DuPont™ Krytox® Performance Lubricants for the Chemical Processing and Petrochemical Industry.

At DuPont, we know from first-hand experience that chemical and petrochemical industry systems require lubricants that help support operational safety. DuPont™ Krytox® Performance Lubricants do just that, with a broad selection of specially formulated synthetic oils and greases that are nontoxic, non-reactive, non-flammable, noncorrosive and compatible with polymers used in seals, O-rings and valves.

Independently studied and tested by companies and organizations such as BOC, Air Liquide, BAM, NASA and General Dynamics, Krytox® lubricants have been confirmed as compatible for use with oxygen and other reactive chemicals.

Krytox® lubricants, including the NRT line of oils and greases, were developed using DuPont technology to satisfy the special needs of the chemical industry.  These first-quality synthetic, perfluoropolyether- (PFPE-) based lubricants deliver a long list of desirable characteristics, including:

  • Safe, non-reactive, non-flammable use with reactive chemicals
  • Effective lubrication extends equipment use-life and saves maintenance
  • Will not auto-ignite in oxygen at temperatures up to 482 ºC
    (900 ºF)
  • No ignition at pressures up to 350 bar
  • Compatible with seal, O-ring and valve polymers
  • Maintain lubricity and stable viscosity throughout a wide range of temperatures in highly corrosive environments
  • Chemically and biologically inert and silicone-free
  • Unaffected and non-reactive to acidic or caustic cleaners as well as disinfectants, steam, moisture and high temperatures
  • Used for lubricating valves, fans, pumps, agitators, reactors, centrifuges and other components
  • Minimal environmental footprint and compatible with chemicals commonly used in industry−contain no volatile organic compound (VOC) materials or chlorine
